    There is not, and never has been, any concept by the Palestinians, the US, the UN, the Arab League nor anybody else for Palestinians to have any form of sovereignty over any Israeli territory. But when an independent Palestinian state is eventually established, that Palestinian state will have sovereignty over all the Palestinian territory Israel now illegally occupies. Regarding E. Jerusalem, Israel is a state lacking any legal basis for sovereignty in Jerusalem. UNSC resolution 181, under which Israel declared statehood, declared Jerusalem to be an international city, "corpus separatum," managed under UN auspices. In 1980 the Knesset passed the "Basic Law" which declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel. The "Basic Law" is a violation of UN Security Council resolutions 476 & 478 and thus a violation of Article 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention, and therefore a war crime. UNSC resolution 478 declared the Knesset "Basic Law" null and void.
